Notes from VP Candidate Paul Ryan event at The Villages in Florida (POWERFUL!)
Fox News' Greta Wire ^ | August 18, 2012 | Greta Van Susteren and Joy Lin

Posted on 08/18/2012 1:16:44 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

There were approximately 3000 people immediately here in the square, reporters noted there were more people at the events Palin and Gingrich held at The Villages. I’m told about 5K people were in the crowd when Romney spoke but I wasn’t here and can’t provide a comparison. One official told a reporter said there were 10K total today, outside the clean area, but we’re skeptical about that estimate.

Here is a slightly tweaked version of the Medicare verbate I sent out earlier.

**10:33:35 AM Like a lot of Americans, when I think about Medicare it’s not just a program, its not just a bunch of numbers, it’s what my mom relies on, it’s what my grandma had.

10:33:56 We had a rule in Wisconsin. It’s kind of an unwritten rule:

you turn 65; you have to go south for the winter. We call them ‘snow

birds’. My mom is a snow bird. She is a Florida resident, and she

lives over by Ft. Lauderdale, and she like so many people here, she

comes down here for the winter—just like so many folks from all over

the country do. You know, my grandma moved in with us—with my mom and

me—when I was in high school. She had advanced Alzheimer’s. My mom and I were her two primary caregivers. You learn a lot about life; you

learn a lot about your elderly seniors in your family; you learn a lot

about Alzheimer’s. Medicare was there for our family, for my grandma,

when we needed it then; and Medicare is there for my mom while she

needs it now, and we have to keep that guarantee.

Willard wouldnt let anything Conservative Paul says stand if it didnt line up with his liberal program...

The moment Willard got elected he would throw Paul under the bus along with te seniors...

Does RomneyCare include death panels or will Willard swipe them from Obamacare ???

Willard fools himself those crowds at Pauls rallies are a mandate on his own popularity...

Wheres the cheering for %50 abortions, under age abortions, gay marriage, gays in the military, gay Boy Scout leaders..

I’m no fan of Romney, but he’s actually been advocating to restore the $700M Obama swiped from Medicare, whereas Ryan’s budget would just move on from what Obama has done.

From repealing Obamacare, which is where it went. Again, I’m no fan of Romney either—I just think you’re picking the wrong fight.

I’m more upset that he wants to replace Obamacare with 50 statewide versions of Romneycare.

_____________________________________

Yeah...

REPEAL and REPLACE...

Repeal ObamaCare
Replace with RomneyCare

Im also concerned about what he means when he says RESTORE...

that sure doesnt mean anything virtuous...

He was the one who has been pro-abortion doe 40 years

he was the one who signed for $50 abortions making the Christian tax payers pay for them ...

he was the one who brought gay marriage into the country...

He was one of those who wanted gays in the military...

he was one of those who had sanctuary cities for illegal aleins and wouyldnt allow the police to arrest them

he was one who was pushing for the AMNESTTY Bill...

So what else is there ???

What does his restoring entail ???

Theres nothing among the wrongs we have right now that Willard didnt cheer lead for...

I see you received today's Democrat Talking Points. How much is the Obama campaign paying you to disrupt these threads anyway?

Whatever he’s paying, he’d be better off saving his money. I think it’s having the exact opposite effect.

Hey, dude—it’s in his friggin’ platform on his campaign web sites. State exchanges, high risk pools, grants, etc..

Romney’s idea of repealing Obamacare is so he can push through Romneycare state by state and somehow, in his mind, prove he was right all along.

No. She just wants Obama to be President for Life because she can't find anyone who agrees 100% with her opinions.

Look at the real hard lefties going after Obama now because he didn't do "Exactly" what they wanted. He might have given them 80% but no... they want it all and damn it, they want it right now!

When they were kids, we called them spoiled brats.

There are a percentage of people who demand perfection from everyone --- but themselves.

That is not reality.

remember don't let it under your skin
then you begin to make it better

you've got the power to help change the direction of this country... instead of friggin' complaining that Romney doesn't fly your kite, be a force to get him in office and pin his ears to the wall if he gets into the liberal weeds... c'mon maign, if we get him in we also hold the reigns to guide his scrawny little _ _ _!!!

Spare me the cheerleading.

I already worked to get Romneycare into office once before (MA guv)—and then he was pathetic.

My contribution to this thread was to correct another poster who erroneously claimed that Ryan was out to protect Medicare funding that Romney was trying to swipe. As part of that I acknowledged the truth that Romney is STILL promoting taking Romneycare national, only now as his replacement for Obamacare.

If you’ve got an issue with people stating simple truths about Romney’s official campaign agenda on FR, I suggest you take that up with the proprietor of FR—and not with me.
